If you're a curvy girl, you probably already know how great it is.

But we all need a little reminder now and again, so I've compiled this list of just a few reasons why being curvy is cool.

1. Your Kids!

Your Kids!

Did you know kids whose moms are curvy in the hips and thighs actually have higher IQs?

How cool is that?

2. You'll Live Longer

You'll Live Longer

Curvy girls actually live a little longer than their stick-thin counterparts, and are at less of a risk for heart disease.

So the next time someone tries to give you that "curves aren't healthy" crap, feel free to tell them to STFU.

3. No Padding Required

No Padding Required

Padded bras and jeans?

Please.

For curvy girls, that's just plain silliness.2

4. Finally

Finally

I shouldn't have to say this, but here goes: after years of the Kate Moss waif look, it's finally okay to be curvy.

Not that it ever wasn't okay, but it's nice to see models with curves, too, just for a little self-esteem boost.

5. Men Love It

Men Love It

You sure don't need a man's attention to be okay with your body, but it helps to know that according to research, men do prefer women with curves.

6. Jeans

Jeans

For you curvy girls, EVERY pair of jeans can be your "good bootie" jeans.

7. The Hugs, Oh the Hugs

The Hugs, Oh the Hugs

Curvy girls give the best hugs, period.

8. The Cleavage

The Cleavage

Eff that dress code: curvy girls have the best cleavage and it's a shame to keep it covered all the time.

It's gorgeous!

9. The Saunter

The Saunter

Thinner girls can strut too, but there's nothing like a curvy girl's hippy saunter.

So what other benefits of being booty-licious can you share?

Do tell!
